This is a port of my 3.7.x modification found HERE.

Do you maybe have a forum that uses some type of information and you wish to alert your members that your forum does not collect it? Maybe a dating forum? Then this modification is for you! This displays a small disclaimer at the bottom of your forums.

The message is customizable via the AdminCP.

Changelog
2.0 - Added usergroup permissions.
1.5 - Added the ability to change the disclaimer via AdminCP
1.2 - Fixed a tiny mistake in spelling. :o
1.1 - Cleaned up code.
1.0 - Released.

What do you mean, I just woke up and am confused by your statement.

Seems like an odd disclaimer considering that vBulletin by default does collect the IP addresses of registered users.

I believe ChopSuey is stating that any admin can manually add the same line of text into their forum's software's style and template editor so that the same message can be seen, hence no need for a product import such as yours. I am more confused that a coder would be confused by that simple statement! ;-)

I wouldn't really say that is personal. Personal is like addresses and such, but I guess it can be considered anything, in which is why I allowed you to change the message via the AdminCP.

As I said... I had JUST woke up. Anyway this was one of my first modifications for VBulletin. It got downloaded a pretty good amount of times, so obviously someone liked/wanted it. I know anyone can add the code to their templates, but what if you have 6 or 7 templates like me? Don't you think installing one modification and taking a few seconds to set up is worth it over wasting more than five minutes adding the code to each template over and over? Anyway I just made some improvements to the code and added some new features. I like to go back on some old projects and implement what I have learned over time. Sure if I wanted to I could make this into a whole huge modification, since I've learned so much, but as you said... a few minutes and anyone can add the manual template edits.

Good hack, but not very useful. You could either edit the footer template, or use the built in vbNotices feature.

Yup, Very handy if your lazy like me and have a few templates...
Also accepts html code etc.... ( Great )

Thanks,

Thanks for the clarification.
